Since the day she was born, I have regretted not taking pictures of my beautiful little girl. I know I was still in shock after she was born, but I wish someone would have asked if I wanted pictures. Or maybe they did and I just don't know it. Thankfully the hospital had taken some. They weren't the greatest quality pictures so I've had to do some editing. Plus, Addie had some pretty bad skin peeling and her color was really off. Recently, I submitted the pictures to a website my mother found. The owner of the website, Heidi Rempel, retouches photos of angels at no cost to parents. The website is called Heartprints Photo Retouching (http://personal.nbnet.nb.ca/crempel/Heartprints/index.htm). I was surprised to see her name in my inbox today, knowing that she has a very long waiting list. The opening lines told me that she had only gotten to one of my photos, but she wanted me to see it. Tears filled my eyes when I saw what she had done with Addie's picture. It was the picture I've had in my head since the day she was born. There was my truly beautiful little girl. Heidi did a wonderful job on the photo. She made a truly rough season just a little bit brighter. Thank you Heidi! I can't even tell you just how much I love the picture!
My beautiful baby girl in living color. I love it! Merry Christmas little one, I know you're out there somewhere, I know you can hear me. Just remember that Daddy and I love you and miss you more than you can ever imagine!
